Making Applesauce

Remember all those apples we picked in Vermont? Well, I needed to get something done with them as we were getting tired of just eating them. We decided to try our hand at applesauce. The girls gave me a hand at peeling and chopping up the apples. They had quite fun at it too!

Cutting apples is fun

I think I broke the peeler
How silly can a household of girls be?
Silly enough for Mama to wonder why there are apple peels all over the floor

We let the applesauce simmer all night, however, we found the next morning, that we apparently put too much water in. After playing around with it a little, I found a way to strain it. The girls enjoyed drinking the strained juice and pronounced it mighty fine!! At least nothing was wasted!

This looks like such fun June! I grew up in a houseful of girls (no brothers) and I remember vividly how SILLY we could all be!!

I can definitely relate to the house full of sillies! I make applesauce every year, and I haven't this year. Yikes. I don't know if I'll be able to get apples or not. This week is full, and next week I'll be gone.....and the apples probably will be, too. My girls don't even like store bought sauce anymore.
Looks like y'all had a day full of fun memories and learning.
